Candidate profile: Norma Blissett

Norma Blissett is a candidate running for city council.

  • Nov. 14, 2014 6:00 p.m.

Cranbrook has been my home for the past 19 years.  It has been a wonderful place to live and to raise my three children. Now that they have grown up and left the nest, I have time to devote to my community as a member of city council.

I’ve worked in the forest industry, taught a few thousand Cranbrook students, and spoken with hundreds of residents.  I’ve also volunteered with many different organizations including the Cranbrook Community Forest Society, Salvation Army and Cranbrook Minor Lacrosse.  I am aware of the issues that are important to Cranbrook families.

My priorities will be improving our infrastructure and growing our local economy. We also need to implement the results of the deer survey, promote our public transit system, and do whatever we can to ensure that every Cranbrook resident has a family physician.

I am practical, decisive and approachable. No one can know it all.  As a city councilor I will consult with the experts, choose a course of action based on the best information available, and be open to new information as it arises.

You can count on me to listen and to act on behalf of the people of Cranbrook.
